Question Will the Foos reply if you write a letter to them IN the "Letter to the Band" Section

Do you think they will because, I'vereally wanted to write to Dave for a long time and I just scrolled that far down the page to notice that section. Before i start typing I was just wondering if any of you ever got a response?

It's very doubtful, as they are really busy, but you never know.....stranger things have happened.

No they won't. That section has pretty much become a joke for regular members.

The harsh truth i'm afraid.

It's true that a lot of the posts in that forum are asking the Foos to do stupid things like give them free tickets to a show or write a song for them and the rest are usually joke posts, monumental praise or bitching about copy protection.

Every so often though there is a serious post.

Like last year sometime there was a girl who posted there after he friend was run over and in serious condition and she wanted to get the band to come and see her friend in hospital. Some people thought it was a load of rubbish and she was faking to try and meet the Foos until somebody found a news article confirming it was true. A few days later she posted again saying that her friend had died but thanked the band anyway for their music. That was a really sad thing.

It's such a boring board, I'm not surprised the band ignores it .

As a rule they do not respond to questions. Chris is the only Foo that has and it was a long time ago.

This is FPA fodder.

Yeah, they haven't even written us in over a year and a half, let alone individual letters.
